Why is This Not a Movie?: The Chronicles of Prydain

Friend of the show Scott Bunn (Run That Back, Recliner Notes) returns so we can co-pitch an adaptation of Lloyd Alexander’s delightful YA fantasy series The Chronicles of Prydain, which was upending genre tropes only a decade after Tolkein had established them. We discuss Disney’s botched attempt to compress the books into The Black Cauldron, give thanks to our 4th grade teacher who introduced us to the series, and speculate as to whether Rian Johnson put an intentional Prydain reference into The Last Jedi.
